A Rose Hill woman critically injured in an early morning collision was listed in fair condition Saturday evening.

The 19-year-old was taken to Wesley Medical Center shortly after 3:45 a.m. Saturday with severe injuries to her right leg, Butler County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Goad said by phone. She lost control of her 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac as she drove east on a dirt road, then crashed into a tree and a fence, leading to her injuries, he said.

The accident happened on Southwest 170th Street near Prairie Creek Road, east of Rose Hill. The woman called 911, Goad said. She was the sole occupant of the vehicle.

Saturday evening, a Wesley operator said the woman’s condition had been upgraded to fair.
